The new system is the first from Shuttle to use the new J1-chassis with the checkerboard design on the front. I like the new case design, it looks really cool. Inside the machine is support for mini-ITX standard mainboards. A new cooling system allows for higher performance components in the small space.
The machine has a dual slot graphics card and supports Core 2 multiple-core CPUs, and up to 8GB of RAM. Cables inside are pre routed for a clean and easy install. The machine uses the Intel G41 Express chipset and has integrated GMA X4500 graphics and a DVI port.
